That day when you fall in love with the vast and barren beauty of Changthang plateau in Ladakh...⠀ ⠀ Photo taken in month of April.⠀ ⠀ Situated on the eastern side of Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh is sparsely populated cold desert spanning over 45,000 Sq. miles. Ladakh is surrounded by the highest mountain ranges including the Great Himalaya and the Karakoram. The mountain ranges present in Ladakh span over the borders of India right into Tibet where they are referred as holy Kailash range of mountains especially for Hindus. Indus is the major river that flows through the Ladakh region. The Indus River along with its many tributaries including Shyok, Zanskar, Dras etc. acts as the lifeline of Indus Valley Civilization.⠀ ⠀ Apart from the breathtaking natural vistas, Ladakh is also known for its Tibetan culture. The rich cultural heritage of Ladakh is reflected on various aspects of the lives of Ladakhis as well as the architecture (monuments and monasteries), food, festivals, celebrations etc. The people in Ladakh love to dance with the mask and these dances are the theatrical representation of the fight between good and evil. You can witness the glimpses of this rich culture in one of the most popular festivals of Ladakh named “Hemis Festival”⠀ ⠀ Checkout the blog (link in bio section) to read about the latest travel news, updates and articles on traveling to Himalayas.

That day when you watch the colors of a 106 Feet Tall Statue of Lord Buddha at Diskit Monastery...⠀ ⠀ Photo taken in month of August.⠀ ⠀ Nubra Valley is one of the MUST VISIT places in Ladakh especially if you are visiting for the first time.

That day when you get stuck in the no mans land or desolated roads of Ladakh and only one to help you is 'you' ;)⠀ ⠀ Photo taken in month of April.⠀ ⠀ Some of the sections between Agham and Shyok villages are extremely difficult, very much landslide prone and will most likely get your heart in the mouth at one or the other curve 😉 😉 … This whole stretch has variety of troubles to greet you – water crossing (some nasty ones), loose rocks, sharp stones, big rocks under water crossings or standing water or sometimes even Shyok river itself on the road 😀 😀 etc.. There are some sections especially before Shyok Village (towards Nubra side), which might be tough to climb even with High Ground clearance vehicles. At one of the section, we were moving and one person kept clearing stones falling from above 😉 …⠀ ⠀ Checkout the blog (link in bio section) to read about the latest travel news, updates and articles on traveling to Himalayas.
